Eagle-eyed technical experts prove there is no such thing as a perfect crime as they assemble the pieces every criminal leaves behind. Dramatic crime re-creations and, sometimes, part of the investigations are a staple of the series. Some of the re-creations include alternate versions of the crimes, which are disproved by science. The show's episodes follow each case from the initial investigation until it reaches its legal resolution.
CNN is by and large still a cable news outlet, but a movement under the leadership of network president Jeff Zucker to provide more alternative, entertainment-based programming is clearly afoot, and "Death Row Stories" is a prime example. The documentary -- the result of a collaboration with Academy Award-winning directors Robert Redford ("Ordinary People") and Alex Gibney ("Taxi to the Dark Side") -- revisits compelling capital murder cases in the U.S., detailing the twists and turns involved in each as a thought-provoking exercise on the death penalty and the American justice system. Redford's Sundance Productions also partnered with CNN for the documentary series "Chicagoland."
A deadly teen rivalry. A scorned lover willing to kill. A quick-rich scheme gone bad.

The cases, dramatized via re-enactments, focus on the criminal's motive, and explore how the victim and lover met, the deepening relationship, the perceived betrayal and the obsession that led to the deadly act. Each hourlong episode takes viewers though all of the twists and turns that culminate in arrests, verdicts and justice.
Victims' rights activist John Walsh returns to weekly TV as host of a documentary-style investigation series.

From there, episodes dissect new clues and re-examine conspiracy theories connected to, among others, the John F. Kennedy Jr. plane crash, the deaths of music royalty Prince, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, and the FBI's investigation of "Unabomber" Ted Kaczynski.

From the team behind CNN's highly rated original series "Finding Jesus" comes "Beyond Reasonable Doubt," an unscripted offering designed to broaden HLN's true crime audience.

Driven by first-person storytelling, episodes feature the lead detectives of each case and a supporting cast of forensic scientists who highlight how technology is changing the face of criminal investigations.
Van Jones wants forgiveness, grace and empathy to be at the forefront of criminal justice reform. The social entrepreneur/CNN political contributor created "The Redemption Project" as a step in that direction, an "attempt to put some medicine into our very sick system," he says. The eight-part series offers a rare glimpse into the restorative justice process, with each episode following the victim, or surviving family members, of a life-altering crime as they journey to meet face-to-face with their offender in the hopes of finding answers or some sense of healing. Jones serves as a guide for viewers throughout the transformational process.
Is one of America's most prolific uncaught serial killers still alive, and will a new $50,000 reward finally help collar the sadistic criminal? Now known as the Golden State Killer and responsible for at least 12 murders in California, the man investigators have sought for 40 years may be linked to another series of unsolved crimes, raising a key to perhaps solving the case.

The HLN original production is a six-part documentary series that examines puzzling diseases and symptoms that result in near-death struggles. Featuring re-enactments, each hourlong episode tells actual stories of how doctors, scientists and, in some cases, federal investigators race against time to discover what or who is killing a patient.
